I live and teach in Montclair, California, the same city where I graduated from high school. I have been married for 35+ years and have two adult sons. My youngest son finished a tour of duty in Iraq in February 2008 and is scheduled to return sometime in the fall of 2008. He received a purple heart during his first tour of duty. I enjoy cooking and creating recipes. I sing with a local choral group as well as my church choir on Sunday mornings. I also started a children's chorus at the school in which I work. We made 5 appearances during our first year in existence.
